Week in Review: 7/17/16

Movies I Watched in the Last Week

1) Grave Encounters 2 - I'm impressed by how many fun new ideas they brought to the table for this sequel, and I appreciated all the comedy.  That said... it's not as good as the first one.  Kinda hard to follow that one up.  If you had to make a sequel, this is probably as good as you possibly could make it, so major props for that.  And it's definitely better than the current 5.2 rating on IMDb would have you believe.

My Rating: 4 / 5

2) The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - Ah, it's okay.  It's a completely unnecessary sequel that breaks no boundaries and will probably annoy a lot of film buff types, but whatever.  It's got some sweet moments and everybody does a decent job.  Watch it while you do your laundry or something.  It's fine.

My Rating: 3.5 / 5

Total: 2 Movies

Minutes I Spent Writing in the Last Week

1) Possible Born Loser Sequel - About six hours of story planning.

Total: 6 Hours

The Winner: Minutes!

This is an oddity... this week is one of the first times I feel embarrassed by the amount of time I've spent working on a book.  Probably that's because it's a book I really shouldn't be writing, but I can't shake it off.  (And this is on the heels of working on a screenplay I shouldn't be writing.)  Yikes.  Need to get my act together.
